Dear Editor

Just a quick question.

In relation to the excerpt:

“Defence Minister Ehud Barak responded to those accusations by repeating Israel’s description of its forces as the most moral in the world.”

does the journalist mean that Barak ACTUALLY SAID something like “the Israeli forces are the most moral in the world”


this was an ironical and judgemental comment made by the journalist about a previous comment made by Barak???

In case Barak ACTUALLY SAID that, I believe it would be more appropriate to have his exact words in direct speech, in order to make clear who said what.
